Alimo Winny is the storyteller of the group. After years of exile and tribulation brought on by the war, Winny is now supporting herself and her family with the money she earns at KK Uganda. Winny is generous with her money (she’s sending her siblings to school) and stories and can often be found telling the other women about her family and her dreams for the future.

“My future plan is to save as much money as possible so as to buy a plot of land and be able to build a house. I also would like to start up an income generating activity so as to earn more money for my family.”

“What I currently like about Northern Uganda is the prevailing peace that exists in the region.”

“My most enjoyable activity is telling stories with friends.”

“My message to KK intl. is that God should bless them for this programme because of the support they are providing. I had no hope of doing anything that would enable me to earn the kind of money I am currently getting because I lack knowledge through formal education. I hope that the organization will extend this support to other vulnerable ladies in the community.”

Before I start, let me just say that I adore your name! I think what you are doing for your siblings is really great, not everyone would work to send them to school. Bless you.If you were my sister I would be forever thankful. I hope someday, soon hopefully, you are able to raise enough money to buy your plot of land. Thanks again for the bracelet. It makes me so happy to think that I know who made this, and their signature is on it. It reminds me to be kind and caring and generous. I will constantly think about how kind and caring and generous you are and it will make me a better person every day. Thank you for giving me that gift. I hope all goes well for you and your family! :) Stay strong Alimo!

I'd also like to thank the gentlemen who started this. I am going through some very rough times right know and I chose to order this product simply because I knew it was suppose to help others. My dream is to do something that helps other and myself. And when I say myself, I mean just make and honest living with what I have now.

September 29, 2011

Dear Alimo Winny,
For years, I owned one brown crocheted beanie. It was my favorite. I wore it during summers, family events, even a wedding! It was my signature hat. One evening, I went to eat out with friends, placed my beanie in my back pocket (as usual) and went to the restaurant. Hours later, I realized my beanie was not in my pocket and became frantic. The beanie was gone. The restaurant never saw it and no one had it in their car. I was bummed. I bought countless beanies hoping to find a replacement. My wife surprised me and said, "I bought this for you because it reminded of you." It was the BARNEY. I received it and thought, "Great, another beanie that won''t fit how I like them too." This beanie fits GREAT! Let me reiterate, IT FITS AMAZING! I have found a replacement for the old favorite. Thank you so much for making this beanie and being part of this organization.
